Was recommended by the doorman at our hotel. We were not disappointed. Great pancakes and the bacon was to die for. I had the eggs Benedict and it was real good. Nothing fancy very casual but good food and service was great and friendly.

This is just want you want a diner to be. Friendly, fast service. Really good comfort food. My milk shake hit the spots. They even have a good selection of healthy choices. (It is California after all). Reasonable prices. Good drinks .

We had such a wonderful breakfast at Jax- so much food we passed in both lunch and dinner for the rest of the day!

The diner, I mean the actual building, was imported to Truckee from West Chester PA. The kind of diner I grew up with, but that is where the similarities end. The food is average at best and expensive for what you get. Trying to milk every ounce it can from being on the TV show Diners and Drive Inns, I... More

Recommended by our hotel, we stopped for breakfast on our way out of Truckee. The diner is an old Pullman car that was brought to Truckee from PA. The food is wonderful, and your plate is more than full. The waitstaff is friendly and more than willing to be helpful. It's right on a corner and you can't miss it.... More

I've passed by Jax Diner many times over the past few years and decided to try it for lunch. Food was average, nothing special at all. What was outstanding was the number of flies inside the restaurant. They were everywhere which made me think about food safety. Won't be going back.

We stopped here for breakfast and it was fabulous, as usual. I had the Spanish Scramble and it was delicious! My husband had the Denver omelet and enjoyed it. It was a bit of a wait, but it was on a Saturday, so that is to be expected. But we did enjoy sitting outside in the sunshine while we waited.... More

We don't watch DD&D usually, but we know what it is and we thought, "Why not try it - we have to eat." So we did. It is an interesting place with the atmosphere of a 50's diner (but who remembers that anymore?) We were a little early for the dinner hours, so there were few patrons in the place.... More

Food is typical diner, service is lousy. Their claim to fame is being on DDD. Nothing to write home about.

If you love corned beef hash and eggs, you cant beat this place. They even have home made English muffins. The food was very good but you have to invest some time and money just to get in. The line was long and there is virtually no waiting area. Worse, the parking lot is metered so you end up paying... More
